This First Friday, the ICA Boston hosts a special event inspired by their exhibition Barry McGee which will feature live krumping performances by Dorchester-based dancers Darrin Nicoleau and friends with music by DJs Knife and Frank White and an artist-led tagging project.
Or, you could head to the South End and over to the Boston Center for the Arts' Mills Gallery from 7-8pm to catch a survey of Anna Von Mertens' recent work GOLD! AND OTHER FALLEN EMPIRES. The SOWA District art galleries (450 Harrison Street in the South End) will be open from 5-8pm. SOWA galleries and artists’ studios are FREE and open to the public of all ages. Make sure you stop by the Laconia Gallery for a preview of their annual 150X150 Mad Dash event which will take place next Saturday, May 11, at noon.
Some of the Big Red & Shiny team will be out on the town tonight. Look out for the #FirstFriday hashtag. Say hello!
